and instead keeps those forces in ukraine the united states may opt out at the next g-8 summit scheduled for early june in sochi. but the president's mentions in the briefing room were not enough for the very hawkish republican senator john mccain who suggested on cnn's "situation room" that he didn't go far enough and that putin doesn't respect obama. >> i really believe that when vladimir putin looks around the world, sees what happened in syria when the president -- when the red line turned pink and the president didn't act, our acquiescence to their occupation of georgia, the -- all of the actions that have to do and indicate a decline of the united states of america, i think he's emboldened and he's acting. >> now, other high profile republican lawmakers have stopped short of criticizing the president, but they've made clear they would like the united states to stand strong against russia, and in support of ukraine. christi and victor? >> all right, erin mcpike in washington for us. thank you, erin. >> all right, back here in the u.s., california is very much in need of rain. we've
the russian speaking people are protected under ukraine's new government. secretary of state john kerry didn't hold back on russia's move in a string of tv appearances. >> it's an incredible act of aggression. it's a stunning willful choice by president putin to invade another country. it's a 19th-century act in the 21st century. >> reporter: russia's action comes after ukraine's president was ousted last week after a reject in a deal with the european union meaning closer ties to the u.s. and away from russia. secretary kerry said ten other nations along with u.s. are prepared to sanction russia, to go to the hilt to isolate it economically. now the administration cancelled trade talks with russia and has backed out of meetings leading to the g-8 in sochi in june. so for all the work and warnings coming from the u.s. it appears that possibly germany has found that off-ramp to russia's force. in a statement saying president vladimir putin has accepted germany's proposal to form a contact group of fact finding mission and a dialogue on ukraine. that said it's being reported that chancellor an

in kiev we respect and honor the territorial integrity of ukraine. as a participating state in the final act of the conference for security and cooperation in europe in 1975, russia committed to respect the sovereign equal and individuality of other participating states. mr. president, it is clear that in many respects, russia has violated the very agreements it signed. it has shown an act of aggression in a sovereign nation of ukraine. now i will concede the situation is complicateed because of the basic agreement between russia and ukraine when it comes to that critical piece of real estate in the black sea, but it still does not warrant the efforts that have been made by putin to destabilize an effort toward peaceful government. mr. putin has argued that the change in government in kiev was just the mob in the street. nothing could be further from the truth. it occurred through its parliament and through its constitution and with the promise of an open and free election on may 25. it's up to us in the west and all countries that believe ukraine deserves our assistance and support to m

. >> jennifer glass is with us from southern ukraine. secretary of state john kerry also says it would be a grave mistake for russia to embark on any kind of military intervention in ukraine. earlier today russian president vladimir putin ordered an urgent drill to test the readiness of forces in russia including the boarders of ukraine. >> we know that vladimir putin had a meeting with his security council on tuesday, in which ukraine was certainly discussed. we know on wednesday two of russia's four military districts were put on high alert. there is nothing that links this alert with what is going on in ukraine. the military analysts we've been speaking to here said this kind of military alert is not uncommon. it's been done six times since february of last year. it's something that the defense minister likes doing to put the military through its paces and basically exposes any flaws in the system and allows the ministry to become more efficient. at least, that's the thinking behind it. having said there is no connection between this military alert and what's going on in ukraine, i

against ukraine. then there is the model provided in the united states which requires sanctions on -- gross human rights violations at home, and we should be speaking to our european allies that they, too, should adopt similar legislation imposing sanctions both toward this particular act of aggression and more broadly the state of human rights violations that characterizes the russian federation today. third, in our congress should look to consider if there's a bill that would take the act sanctions for human rights violations and make them applicable not just to the individuals in the russian federation, but globally. and whenever we are looking at the types of countries that both abuse their populations at home and threaten their neighbors, these things are, and this is a solution which applies from countries, iran and china broadly, but once again as legislation sitting in congress deserves to be considered. the second audience, our allies, our partners, the people's look to the united states traditionally for leadership. vasser eric edelman who serves on the board of direct

crimeaans who welcome them, ukraine is in a state of heighten d anxiety. whether the vote was for show, there's real ramifications on the ground, and it could be a slippery slope. these situations can get away from anybody, even somebody as adept at controlling powers like vladimir putin is. >> i want to get your thoughts on that. there is a concern that the government in ukraine is alienating people close to russia within the country. is there a lot of credibility and sympathy within ukraine to that? >> yes, the old guard always takes advantage of any slip-ups that the new guard makes, whether in ukraine or other countries that have gone through revolutions. what happened here is that the new government repealed a law allowing russian language to be the second official language. if ipp feweriated many -- infuriate many that look towards them for political guidance and help. people in kiev and the western part of the ukraine are looking to the west. there's is sense that they may have stepped too far. they have made the step. it's too late to step back from that. they are focussed on c
of economic package because ukraine is teetering on the edge of default, and the united states, the e.u., and the imf are working together to come up with a package, maybe as high as $15 billion. that's what the russians initially offered to president jankovich. that's what the protests began and toppled him. the second conversation, which i'm guessing is taking place as we speak, is one about a response to what has occurred. president obama said yesterday there will be costs, and it looked like russia is throwing down the gauntlet, is using military force, wants to try to separate crimea to stir up trouble, and so the u.s. and the e.u. will be talking about what can we do to say to russia that this is unacceptable? >> what are the u.s. options? what does president obama have? >> well, i would say there are three arrows in the quiver. the first kind of response would be diplomatic, and that would be to say we're going to perhaps withdraw ambassadors from europe and the united states, those that are in moscow. it could involve a cancellation of the g-8 summit, which is scheduled in soc
the united states of meddling in the ukraine's affairs. the u.s. is saying do not meddle. does the white house have a response? >> we have make clear that he lost legitimacy and advocated his responsibilities. he fled the capital of the country in an orderly fashion. he packed his belongings and left. also important to note that the ukrainian parliament acting responsibly to fill that vacuum elected a new government after mr. got a code which -- yanukovych fled the scene. security forces under his control used snipers in downtown kiev to kill dozens of ukrainians. i think that goes to the loss legitimacy. he packed up his belongings until this recent of conference review for not known. contains parliament members of parties that take withn with votes substantial majorities including votes to stabilize the situation in ukraine and move forward with a plan to have plan to have early elections. and is all appropriate fluid. briefing earlier today. the un security council met a short time ago to discuss the situation in ukraine. the meeting came hours after ukraine said russian troops took u

this new quasi-state in crimea, claim its state then it may be harder for ukraine to become a member of nato. these may be strategic actions that putin is trying. >> i think what president putin -- president obama has done today was a very strong statement. an unscheduled press conference, that is quite unusual. chancellor angela merkel in germany has been very forceful as well, the ukrainian government should not do what the georgian government did in 2008, by responding with some force of its own. russia would like to have that so there wouldn't be black and white. right now it's black and white, it's russian aggression, even low level congregation aggressil aggression. >> accused putin of empire building, it's certainly getting ugly on the rhetoric side, it's a pleasure having you both on the show and look forward to having you back. >> thank you. >> turning from ukraine to brutal atrocities in the world's youngest country south sudan. what's going on there is horrific, in the town of malakol, in the oil rich north. find no words to describe the brutalities in malakol. war crimes

to ukraine prompted this stern warning from secretary of state john kerry in his interview with us. also a not so friendly caution from kerry to putin about how quickly these kinds of uprisings can catch fire. >> i think the rapidity with which it has moved should frankly be a message to russia. and mr. putin should listen carefully to ukrainians who have voiced their desire for change. so we're hoping that russian -- russia will not see this as sort of a continuation of the cold war, we don't see it that way. we do not believe this should be an east/west, russia/united states. this is not rocky iv, believe me. >> the russian prime minister today said that the opposition and the rebellion in ukraine are extremists. >> we are not looking for confrontation. but we are making it clear that every country should respect the territorial integrity here, the sovereignty of ukraine, russia has said it will do that and we think it's important that russia keeps its word. >> and then there is this, kerry has told me that now russia has increased its weapons to assad's regime in syria, despite the ho

takes center stage today surround russia's invasion of ukraine. secretary of state john kerry will meet with his russian counterpart this morning in paris. >> president obama and i want to make it clear to russia and to everybody in the world that we are not seeking confrontation. >> reporter: last night president obama talked about a possible resolution with german chancellor angela merkel. the proposal would allow russian troops to stay in crimea but on their bases in the region. and international monitors would ensure ethnic russians in ukraine are protected. russian president vladimir putin calls the invasion a humanitarian mission to protect those russians living in ukraine. he also said he would use force if needed. but while politicians talk, russian soldiers are digging in. >> once they are there, there is not a reason judging by what putin has done in the past to think they are going to leave. >> reporter: the u.s. is considering economic sanctions against russia. susan mcginnis, cbs news, washington. >> putin said economic sanctions would not make a difference. >>> it is 4:42.
with the latest detail from the ukraine. reaction from marco rubio and secretary of state john kerry on the sunday morning talk shows today. here is what they had to say. >> if you are asking whether the u.s. should be taking military strikes against russian troops in the u.k. or -- in the ukraine or crimea, i don't think anyone is advocating for that. our nato alliance needs to be reinvigorated. it's an important alliance. the ukraine and poland are part of that alliance and we need to provide assurance of the importance of this alliance and i think we should revisit the missile defense shield we talked about so often. beyond that, as part of strengthening and stabilizing the government in kiev so they can transition to stability down the road, part of that should be strengthening their defense capabilities. athink the threat is long-term one they are facing. >> let me make it clear -- resident putin is not operating from a place of strength here. janik overage was his supported president. was out despite his support. president putin is using force in a completely inappropriate invite the would o
and substantial in terms of the number of weapons that ukraine held at that time. the secretary of state has been cleared about the obligations placed on russia. what obligations are placed on us as a signature? >> our obligations are to support as we do the independence and territorial integrity of ukraine. it doesn't placed on us an obligation to take armed action about that. it provides in article six of the memorandum for consultation between the signatories. that is what we and the united states are proposing for tomorrow. secretary kerry and i and the acting foreign minister of ukraine will be in paris tomorrow. there is an opportunity for us to have consultations under the budapest memorandum. that is the technical answer. that is what it provides for. further to the point of the secretary's comments, the u.k. andived a limited supply exposure to consequences for the rest of europe. what do you do about ensuring the security of the supplies so does not end up limiting our ability to take actions against russians? with the gentleman is raising is very important but it is more of a medium to
the troops are local self defense you wants opposed to last week's jousting of ukraine's popularly elected president. diplomats from europe, the united states and russia have met separately in paris today to try to defuse the worst crisis on the continent since the cold war. the key sticking point is russia's refusal to recognize the new interim government in ukraine which seized power after months of sometimes violent protests in kiev and other cities. in the meantime the west has firmly thrown its support behind the new ukrainian government. the european union announced an aid package of $15 billion to ukraine. that is designed to make up for a russian package of about the same amount that had been forthcoming until the events of last week. now that announcement comes a day after secretary of state john kerry promised $1 billion in loan guarantees from the united states to try to offset the loss discounts on natural gas that ukraine has been getting from russia until this all happened. now all of this underlines the deep economic mess that ukraine is in. the new interim government said i
don't think russia wants instability on its border in ukraine any more than the united states or european union. there's common interest to stabilize the situation in ukraine. that means this new government has to be committed to unt, reconciling different factions in the country and they have to be committed to freedom and democracy. i hope they are. >> it's interesting because you have a lot of experience having traveled to ukraine on many occasions. but my question to you is if putin was on the same page as the united states, why would he put these troops there? >> there's been some discussion that this is a regularly scheduled exercise. i do not know if that is true or not. i think putin is probably trying to signal to the new government in ukraine, don't mess around with cremia. it's trying to be tough, new guy in the neighborhood. >> why should people here came? >> they should care. number one it's a large country ge grarvegly, the size of france, 150 million people. it was called the breadbasket of the soviet union. someone far smarter than i observed russia without ukr
an arrest warrant issued for him in ukraine, russian state media saying that russia has accepted his request for security. but this is something else that john kerry referred to today. he said that vice president biden has tried to reach him for over the last 12, 24 hours repeatedly. those calls have gone unanswered. and biden was speaking to him pretty regularly before then. so he is out there as far as american officials are concerned. >> jim sciutto, thanks very much. >>> up next was is racist or just a roast? tonight some outrage over comments made by an arizona lawmaker during a roast of sheriff joe arpaio. hear and decide for yourself. >>> also ahead tonight, take a look. >> we cannot breathe back here. go. >> chaos and panic onboard a delta flight after the cabin started to fill with smoke. how passengers got out and exactly what happened coming up. did you run into traffic? no, just had to stop by the house to grab a few things. you stopped by the house? uh-huh. yea. alright, whenever you get your stuff, run upstairs, get cleaned up for dinner. you leave the house in
airports in crimea and southern ukraine and also a state-run tv station. this, as the ousted president, viktor yanukovych, came forward today vowing not to step down. let's bring in senior white house correspondent jim acosta. jim, what are we expecting the president to say here? >> i think the president is going to back up secretary john kerry and other officials, including jay carney earlier this afternoon, that any moves by russia to intervene in the crisis to perhaps invade that territory of crimea would be a grave mistake, in the words of white house officials and according to secretary of state john kerry. one thing that we've been pressing officials all day long, jake, is exactly who those forces are in the crimea area. we're seeing forces with insignias that appear to be blackandover or concealed. it's not clear who is on the ground in crimea. hopefully we'll get updated information from the president as to what that is. jake, make no mistake, this is, again, once again, another confrontation between the president and vladimir putin over what is happening. those events on the g
, and this is "the five." as russia tightens its grip on the crimea region of the ukraine, the united states is weighing their options to tighten their grip on the country. john kerry is headed there tonight. russia has given a deadline of 10:00 p.m. eastern for two war ships to surrender or be seized. putin made his first public appearance today to watch military maneuvers in russia, and earlier today, president obama offered this warning. >> i think the strong condemnation that it's received from countries around the world indicates the degree to which russia is on the wrong side of history on this. if in fact they continue on the current trajectory they're on, we're examining a whole series of steps, economic, diplomatic, that will isolate russia. this will be a costly proposition. >> nato's counsel will hold an emergency meeting at the request of poland. it feels its security is threatened. bob, i want to go to you first. in any white house, you can be going along, you have your agenda, your state of the union and all of a sudden, something happens overseas and lands on the president's d

, the united states has essentially no cards to play in ukraine, so i wouldn't blame the president for not having sort of forged or made putin reconsider the occupation. we do not have a lot of leverage. and without the europeans who have the real interaction economically with russia, our trade is minimal to about half the worth of bill gates. unless the europeans are joining in our sanctions, it will have minimal effect. all that we can do, i think, is to reassure the nato nations who are on the border of ukraine, poland, slovakia, romania, that we are not going to allow an intrusion into nato. and i think what the president ought to be doing is reassuring them by scheduling joint military maneuvering with them and with the baltic stating saying i can't do a lot on y ukrai ukraine, but i can on nato. >> hitler, back in the '30s. all the germans by ancestry. hitler kept saying, they're not being treated right, and i must do something. that's what's raising eyebrows. she clai-- >> once you say hitler, there's so much impliemplied. once you say that, everybody thinks oh, you're talki
